Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore Reviews

  • Jenny (Reading Envy)
    This is my favorite read of #scienceseptember so far. Rush, who I saw read at AWP this year, combines individual narratives with broader looks at communities confronting changes in shoreline because of climate change and human impact. Fascinating stuff from a rotting wetland in Maine to a disappeari...
  • Annie Harvieux
    The best climate change book I've ever read. So much useful information but so personal and relevant to things that have already happened due to climate change! A must-read....
  • Jed Mayer
    Without question the most powerful account of climate change I've yet read, paying equal attention to human and nonhuman lives, race and class, geography and economics, emotion and reason.

    A sobering, elegant look at rising waters, climate change, and how low lying areas and the vulnerable people who live in those areas are at risk....
  • Yun
    Rising is a sobering and unflinching look at the impact of rising sea levels from the front lines--those coastal communities dealing with hurricanes, flooding and loss of property. What this book does best is bring the theoretical problem of climate change to the here and now. It isn't some potentia...
  • Karen
    I am in the minority here. This book has garnered a lot of praise, and almost won the Pulitzer. It is, as Elizabeth Kolbert's blurb on the back said, "by turns bleak and beautiful" but I'm less convinced that it's "a compelling piece of reporting," which was the first part of that blurb. I'd say it ...
